CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: As of 20th March he still plan to run guided Hill Trips every day if possible but our Paddocks and Exhibition are closed. Please contact us or see our Facebook/Website for more up to date information.Late Winter/ Early SpringWith winter still here why not visit Britain's only free-ranging herd of reindeer in their natural environment. At this time of year all of our reindeer are out and about free-ranging in the Cairngorm mountains.Visits attempt to go everyday at 11am at this time of year, but can be cancelled due to road closures. Call at 9am on the day to find out if the Hill Trip is happening. Once there, your guide will tell you all about the reindeer and you can walk amongst them, stroking them and feeding them by hand. The walk could be as long as 45 minutes depending where the reindeer are each day. It will take you across some rough and snowy/muddy ground up the mountainside so make sure you've got some sturdy footwear and some nice cosy layers! Full waterproofs are a necessity. The weather is often very snowy/windy and as the reindeer are free-ranging at this time of year please give us a wee call on the day of your visit (just after 9am is a good time) to make sure we've found the herd! Spaces are limited so please arrive early, we recommend to arrive by 10am if possible. We do not have a pre-booking system available so places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
